people aren't joking when they say christmas is more magical with a baby. even though niels is a bit too little to really get what's going on, i like to think that he loved going to a tree lot and picking out our christmas tree. and listening to the music at the christmas program at church. and sitting on santa's lap. and spending his evenings mesmerized by the lights on our tree. and wearing his christmas jams. and all the time we spent with family, where he was endlessly doted on :)
